Doing What “Matters” At Aqueduct (12/31)

Dec 31st, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast on New Year’s Eve at Aqueduct.  I want to wish all my family and friends a very happy, healthy and profitable new year!

In race 8, Mine Over Matter (#2) loves the local track and can sit close to a fast pace and rally at a decent price.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #8.

In race 9, Sumfun (#3) stretches out to two turns but should be on an uncontested lead and could get brave at a price — I’m keying in the late double, pick 3 and pick 4 and playing an exacta box with #’s 6 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 and 6

Race 2: 5 and 7

Race 3: 6 and 5

Race 4: 2 and 5

Race 5: 6 and 1

Race 6: 6 and 5

Race 7: 6 and 7

Race 8: 2 (Best Bet) and 8

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) with 6 and 8



Happy Holidays To All (12/25)

Dec 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Just wanted to wish my loyal readers a very happy holiday and a prosperous, healthy new year.  I will be back handicapping starting next Friday so please come back and let’s have a profitable rest of the year and in 2011!



Making A “Sacrifice” At Aqueduct (12/19)

Dec 19th, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Cold and fast for the Sunday card on the inner track — I have to totally adjust my handicapping to account for a major inside speed bias that has been prevalent over the last week of racing.  I better do it in a hurry if I am to turn around an awful display of handicapping the past few weeks! Only listed 4 winners, two on top on Saturday’s card — just not good enough, but I will keep trying.

In race 9, Token Sacrifice (#6) ran well in last with statebreds and goes first time for Rudy Rodriguez — I’m keying in the late double and pick 3 and playing an exacta box with #10.

In race 7, Barney’s Bullet (#6) comes over from Monmouth for a trainer who has done well here with limited starters — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 5 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1 and 5

Race 2: 6 and 1

Race 3: 6 and 3

Race 4: 6 and 2

Race 5: 3 and 6

Race 6: 2 and 10

Race 7: 6 (Best Bet) with 5 and 10

Race 8: 6 and 4

Race 9: 6 (Best Bet) and 10



Time To Make “Nice” At Aqueduct (12/18)

Dec 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Cold and fast on the inner track at Aqueduct with a decent card on tap.  It’s been a struggle lately to handicap consistently and there may be an inside speed bias again today.  Let’s see if I can find a way to pick some winners on top at decent prices!

In race 1, Papa’s Nice Cat (#5) goes second off a long layoff, gets off the rail and can rate off a fast pace and get the job done today — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #6.

In race 7, Black Pen (#9) is lightly raced and should have plenty of bottom to run these down at 6 furlongs from a good stalking post — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 (Best Bet) and 6

Race 2: 4 and 5

Race 3: 6 and 7

Race 4: 6, 5 and 9

Race 5: 7, 5 and 4

Race 6: 5 with 7 and 9

Race 7: 9 (Best Bet) and 3

Race 8: 3 and 6

Race 9: 11 and 5
